Bright modern decor, bright modern staff. A very pleasant place to sit over tea and cake. The food was freshly prepared using good ingredients. Pricing led us to expect rather more 'upmarket' presentation, but sadly the fish and chips were no better than our local choppy. We tried other restaurants in the area where the menu was more inventive and... More

We walked past this establishment a couple of times before realising that it was open in the evenings. We are very glad that we made the visit. The look and feel of the restaurant is very relaxed. The staff were very pleasant and the food was excellent for the money. Make the effort, it's worth it

Love this place! Best goats cheese salad and the steak is to die for! The bar manager made us some excellent mojitos and we got talking to our waitresses Amarni & Kelly, both really friendly! We will visiting again soon to try the rest of the cocktail menu out! Attentive staff, amazing food and a really well looked after restaurant!

I was fortunate enough to stumble across the Boathouse one day whilst on a weekend getaway, and can I say it was amazing. Firstly the hospitality was second to none, specifically what seemed to be the manager or person in charge called Ben I believe. Firstly what a lovely man, making me feel welcome from the off and engaging in... More

My partner and I visited Charlestown last week, the sun was shining and what better views to enjoy than in Charlestown??! With two dogs it is always hard to find somewhere dog friendly with a quality standard. However, my partner asked if dogs were allowed, Ben, the manager, said they were more than welcome in the garden area which was... More

If you are ever visiting Cornwall, I would highly recommend this place! We stopped off at Charlies Boathouse for breakfast before a long drive back to Birmingham. It was very busy even at 10am & it had just opened. We were sat down quickly and staff were polite and attentive. Our food arrived hot despite being busy! it was a... More

Love love love this place! The staff are so friendly and fun. They were certainly the best part of this visit. Every single one of them were smiling and enjoying the company of the guests. You could tell they love what they do. I'm vegan and to find somewhere I can walk into and be accommodated for is rare. They... More

I visited Charlie's boathouse recently and I cannot say enough about how fantastic the experience was! The staff were welcoming and friendly, and I had arrived with my dog so requested a table outside. The manager found me a table almost immediately and fussed around my pooch; even bringing her a bowl of water! He was knowledgable about the cocktails,... More
